Horror is a genre of fiction intended to frighten, scare, disgust, or startle readers by inducing feelings of terror or horror. H.P. Lovecraft, Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, Bram Stoker, Dean Koontz, Mary Shelley, and Joe Hill are a few authors associated with the exceptional genre. I love reading horror because it’s so easy to get enveloped in the story! I can watch a scary movie and be completely okay, but reading horror can give me nightmares for days. When you are someone like me, who loves all things scary and being scared, there is so no better way to experience Horror than by reading it!

In this post, I wanted to highlight the Horror books that I plan on reading this month and share a list of the 20 scariest books of all time according to some of my favorite librarians and friends!
